Amish 82 is an unpretentious elektro/house duo based in Trondheim, Norway. Percussionist/programmer Jørgen Meyer and keyboardist/programmer Snorre Valen is the core of the project-based group, and they often hire guest artists to contribute with vocals, guitars and other instruments, both for recordings and their regular live gigs.
"Shovels And Cava" is the result of one year of experimenting. The mini-album combines layers of genres, and showcases the contrasts between minimalist and dry house beats on one hand, and baroque arrangements on the other. It is Amish 82's first regular release"

Shovel And Cava
This album has some really good Pop ideas in it for it being so simple sounding. I give this album four stars.

Simple and catchy!
Thanks so much for your release. While it "only" features 5 original tracks, those are enough for me to make it one of the favourite albums I own. My favourites (in order) are Pewter (#5), Shovels And Cava (#1) and The Silhouette Of The Amish (#2).
I don't like the remixed versions too much, but they are a nice add-on.
